Description at the National Archives: "Reel 1: Part 1 shows the University of Utah campus; the Utah basketball team practices and then plays St. John's University at Madison Square Garden. Part 2, models of an LCL and of an aircraft carrier are constructed and tested at David W. Taylor Model Basin, Washington, DC. Part 3 describes Air Force educational courses for servicemen. Reel 2: Describes jet-assisted takeoffs by Navy planes. Jet units are mounted on a plane; it takes off and then jettisons the unit. TBF's take off with and without jet assistance. SB2's take off from a carrier. Part 4, Secretary James Forrestal addresses Naval Academy graduates. Part 5, comedienne Nancy Walker presents a song and dance show."
The Army-Navy Screen Magazine was produced by the U.S. Army Signal Corps Pictorial Service, under the supervision of Col. Frank Capra, who came up with the idea. It was released twice a month and shown to military troops as a 20-minute newsreel.

"By the end of the war, the Army-Navy Screen Magazine reached an enormous weekly audience of 4.2 million. It had become for American soldiers all over the world a communal experience that greatly influenced their perception of the war."

It featured short documentary films, news from back home, and short training films like Dr. Seuss' Private Snafu cartoons. I've uploaded the entire Screen Magazine and also each segment as a separate file (some editions are comprised of 1 long film, though).

As always, any error or typo is mine and if you enjoy my uploads or if you intend to make $ or otherwise profit from these files, please consider making a donation to a veteran's charity of your choice and/or itself. Thanks. :)
